Another Discovery Channel “Shark Week” without mentioning the Shark Attack capitol of the Westerm Hemipshere (maybe of the world)

"So I went in lower. The water all around the raft was turning red…the cloud spreading. Then I saw the shark—about the same length as the raft. The rafter was in fact a Cuban woman in her early twenties. Upon her rescue we found she had two bullet wounds in her legs from Castro’s frontier police. All others in the raft, including two infants had died, as did the shark, from being repeatedly stabbed by the pointed end of a broken oar by Maria. The Shark had bitten the oar in half as Maria pounded him…I started flying rescue missions full-time after that.

“The boys’ father, delirious from thirst and exposure, finally jumped in the water,” recalls another rescuer.

So the sons threw him a rope tied to the raft and he clutched it. They turned away for a second, slightly relieved—but only to spot a huge shark approaching, then another. Soon an entire school surrounded the raft and they ripped into their father…The water turned red as their father was eaten alive….. I can tell you from decades of and heart-breaking work from our center here in Key West that in the Florida straits every week is shark week.

Were the “root cause” of this drama and horror more politically-correct can you imagine its popularity in movies? Docudramas? Reality TV? The Discovery Channel? But as usual, Castro also escapes censure for this form of torture and mass-murder. AH! But The Discovery Channel, you see, is a major business partner of the Castro regime.

Full details here.

Our friends at Frontpage Magazine help disseminate some items not fully understood outside the tiny Cuban-AMerican informational ghetto.

Imagine if you will, a regime that drove from ten to twenty times as many people to die trying to escape it as did the East German regime--but was hailed by Newsweek magaine in 2011 as among "the best countries in the world to live."
